As you ring in the New Year and look to the future, thoughts of new beginnings and promises of change are inevitable. Topping the list are resolutions to lose weight, exercise more, and eat healthier. Smokers often resolve to kick their cigarette habit.
We support these healthy goals. In fact, we believe plastic surgery can help you stay the course.
How Can Plastic Surgery Support Weight Loss?
Plastic surgery is not a weight-loss method or solution. Instead, various procedures can enhance your hard work and help you overcome stubborn areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Desirable incentives, positive reinforcement, and rewards are all helpful in goal realization. So, use the promise of your dream procedure as motivation on your way to your ideal weight.
What Does Plastic Surgery Have to Do with Smoking Cessation?
Ideal plastic surgery candidates are non-smokers. Smoking increases your risk factors when you undergo any surgery. Wounds heal slower, and the risk of tissue necrosis is higher. Scarring is more prominent, blood clots are more common, and the potential for other complications increases.
So, it is imperative that you stop smoking well before plastic surgery. We understand how difficult smoking cessation can be. But many of our patients have found that the added incentive of being approved for a much-desired cosmetic procedure can help.
What Plastic Surgery Procedures Can Enhance My Weight Loss Journey?
These four popular procedures can provide desirable body contouring effects to complement your weight loss.
Buccal Fat Removal
Get rid of those chipmunk cheeks and enjoy more defined facial features with buccal fat removal.
Once you hit your goal weight, you are ready to target lingering trouble areas. Liposuction contours the tummy, thighs, hips, knees, neck, and upper arms.
When exercise hasn’t done the trick, sculpt and flatten your tummy with abdominoplasty. This procedure gives you firmer, tighter abs for a leaner body.
Fat elimination through diet and exercise often fails to significantly reduce breast size. But breast reduction surgery can deliver. This procedure eliminates back and neck pain caused by overly large breasts.
What’s the Next Step to Your New Year’s Resolution Success?
Body shapes, sizes, and forms vary greatly, as do ideal beauty standards and aesthetic goals. If you realize the benefits of including plastic surgery in your efforts to achieve your ideal body, schedule a consultation with Dr. Messa to discuss your goals and expectations.
